got a b 4 years ago. romney got a c, mccain got a c+, the press got a lower grade, the voters gave themselves a lower grade. four years ago they gave themselves a b; this year they gave themselves, just a c. now part of that is partisanship. it was mostly the republicans who had a lower opinion of how the voters performed, but none the less, it fit with a very negative take on this campaign. >> sreenivasan: so there is also this underlying tension between the diminishing hope in the electorate and increase in anger. >> yeah, i mean there is no question about it. a public who says, we would like to see... 67% saying we would like to see republicans work with obama and make some compromise, and we find 72% saying that they want to see obama make some compromises with republicans. but then we ask people what do you expect, and they don't expect any... a majority say they don't expect things to get better, and 14% say they expect it to get worse. so you have 2/3 with a negative outlook. and part of it has to do with the opinions of voters themselves. republicans... only 46% of republ
